    Do you watch Teen Mom? Yes, it's so bad.....
    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare? I think anyone who isn't practicing abstinence has had at least one. 
    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? Nope.
    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? Prevention in school, but abstinence at home.
    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment? Neither. My class didn't have to. I wanted the baby though. It was 200 extra credit points.

    Do you watch Teen Mom? I try to keep up.

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare? Yes.

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? Nope.  I found out from my next door neighbor, whose older sister got knocked up when we were both 7.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? My mom's exact words were, "Don't have sex.  But if you do have sex, use protection."

    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment? Nope.  I went to Catholic school.

    Do you watch Teen Mom? Nope...I have a whole string of comments on it though...
    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare? Yes...I had a ONS and didn't use protection...yep, that was stupid...even though it was someone I was friends with, it would have been bad all around...
    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? My "talk" with my mother basically consisted of "Don't do it"...I made the choice on my own to not have sex until I was out of high school because I didn't want to.
    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? Sure
    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment? No, and thank goodness...I took lifeguarding in high school (it was a way to have swimming for a whole semester and not have to run) and failed CPR on an infant... :(

    Do you watch Teen Mom? No

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare? Not a serious one, but I've definitely had those times when I'm a day late and immediately freak out.

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? I'm sure my mom did, although I don't remember specifics. It clearly wasn't as funny as what Stage's mom said :)

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? Prevention all the way.

    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment? No.

    Teen Mom? Yeah...and "16 and Pregnant".  I love them for some reason.

    Pregnancy scare? Maybe...I was a few days late and thought 'well I could be' but deep down I knew I wasn't.

    Folks ever give you "the talk"? My grandpa did when I was 18. Of course by that time I was already in a 3 yr long relationship and had been having sex for awhile. He cut out a "dear abby" article that was titled "16 and having a baby." He told me to read it and come talk to him about it. He didn't even have the "talk" with his own daughters...all three of them. I guess he felt he must talk to me...his only granddaughter. It was awkward to say the least.

    Where you taught about prevention or abstinence?  I didn't get the actual talk until later but my mom would make comments when I was younger so I guess abstinence. The comments? things like "if you have sex you die"

    In health class did you get an egg or baby? No....It was more of the "this is a penis, this is a vagina, this is how it all works, see you later" kind of things. In SC public school you learn about your period but that's about it.

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare? No

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? Nope.  They were clearly "getting pregnant while in school will ruin your life" type of parents, though.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? Both, in school, to encourage abstinence.  But it sounds like we were probably taught more about stuff than a lot of schools - STDs, contraceptive failure rates (but not how to use them), NFP, options if getting pregnant, why the Catholic church was against various things. 

    They also liked to use one guy who had a kid after a one night stand as an example of "you don't want to end up with a kid while you're in HS like ___."  I always felt bad for him that they were using him as an example.


    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment? No.  My sister took a class in the home ec department where she got one.  It's name quickly became, "Shut up stupid baby"

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? not really.  For sex-ed in 6th grade parents had to sign a permission slip.  When my mom signed it she said "let me know if you have any questions."  right, like I'd ask my parents about that stuff.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? in school, prevention.  In 9th grade the health teacher brought in a whole box of various contraceptives.  At home mom would make comments like , "see, this is why people shouldn't have sex before they're married" if there was a young unwed mother suing the baby daddy on Judge Judy or something like that.

    Do you watch Teen Mom? Yes!

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare? I just did.  I hate google.  Never google your symptoms.  All is well now.

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? Yes, my mom gave me the talk.  It was fine.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? Both.

    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment? No - we got bags of flour that were decorated as children.  Mine was a boy named Henry.

    Do you watch Teen Mom?  No... I did see a few minutes of it this month... it was playing in the background while I was getting ready in my hotel room.

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare? No I'm very careful

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? Yes my friend in grade 9 got pregnant from her grade 8 boyfriend.  My parents told me that if I ever got pregant they would adopt my child until I was old enough to take care of it myself.  Oh and my Dad also told me to swallow! LOL!  They were very open with talking to us about anything.

    Were you taught prevention or abstinence?  Prevention, we were on the pill in high school.   Funny how both my sister and I waited until we were older (18-19)  to first have sex even though we weren't raised to wait and we were both in serious relationships in high school.

    In heath class were you ever given an egg or an electronic baby for an assignment?  I'm not sure if we had an egg.. kinda sounds familiar?  We definitely had to make a flour baby in grade 8 and carry it around for a while.

    Do you watch Teen Mom? I do. I've become more unsympathetic towards the girls as their babies get older, though. And, I'm leery of the show because they didn't address Farrah's daughter's father passing away months before Farrah had her child in the episode of 16 and Pregnant she was in and waited until the second season of Teen Mom to even broach the subject. That should have been a huge event in the show when it happened.  MTV! How dare you manipulate me, your trusting viewer!

    It really just makes me wonder what else we haven't seen.
    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare?Not really a scare, but an, "I'm late...I should probably POAS just to make sure..."

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? My mom did, but she was very much a believer that sex = babies, so it was just a doom and gloom talk. Sex is bad and you'll get pregnant and we'll be ashamed. Thank goodness I was old enough to have already formed a healthy opinion on sex.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? Both. Thank goodness for public school.

    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment? No, but they made them mandatory the year after I took health in high school. Those things were brutal.

    Do you watch Teen Mom? FI and I watch it sometimes. Amber and Gary are both unfit parents IMO.

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare? Yup....when I was 17, turned out to be a false alarm :-)

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"? Nope, learned everything I needed to know and then some at school.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence? Mostly prevention, we didn't have abstinence-only education at my school.

    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment? Nope, if you took Child Psychology you'd have an electronic baby.

    Do you watch Teen Mom?
    Never seen it.

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare?
    No, thankfully. But I am always very paranoid anyway.

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"?
    Yes and no. Someone else told me when I was very little, then my mom kind of took it from there when I started asking questions. She drew pictures and everything.
    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence?
    Mainly just how to be safe.  But I was told that if I got knocked up in middle or high school that I wouldn't be knocked up for long.
    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment?
    I never took a health class. I did the IB program and we were exempt from health and PE because of our schedules.

    I'm surprised at some of the things that you guys have been taught in sex ed. We weren't allowed to hear a lot of that. When I say not allowed I mean that it is illegal to teach us that stuff. I def. think that it shouldn't be. Kids need to know that stuff!
    [QUOTE]<strong>"STDs, contraceptive failure rates (but not how to use them), NFP, options if getting pregnant, why the Catholic church was against various things."- gotta[/QUOTE]

    </strong>To this day I haven't been taught about any of that stuff. It's embarrasing how little I know about STDs and getting pregnant. I know that condoms and pills are ways to prevent pregnancy but that's about it. ::blush::

    Do you watch Teen Mom?
    I do!!  I was really hoping Gary would call Child Protective Services to get Leah out of there. 

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare?
    Yep.  I remember calling now DH to let him know that I had to take a pregnancy test but that it turned out negative.  He came home, looked at me and said, "Pregnant sweetheart??"  I reminded him that it was negative and then told my best friend, who is a guy, this story.  He was almost yelling "He stopped listening after the word pregnant!!! Don't do that to a guy!!!  Start off with 'It was negative but I had to take a pregnancy test."

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"?
    No.  They knew that I was going to be putting myself through college because I wanted something better and trusted me to not do anything that would risk messing that up.  They were right.  I was out of college before I started having sex.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence?
    We were taught both.  In grade school health class it was abstinence only.  In highschool we were taught all the birth control in depth with an emphasis on natural family planning.  Every girl pulled out their monthly planners started marking off the days that they wouldn't be able to have sex (during their period, during their fertile time) and collectively said "Hell No!" to Natural Family Planning.

    I went to a Catholic school in a really tough neighborhood but it was one that was more concerned with the students going on to college and not letting a pregnancy stop that than they were what the Archbishop said.  This is the same school whose biology teacher said, "We will be discussing evolution today and because this is a Catholic school, I am required by the archdiocese to also discuss creationism.  This is a science class and we will deal only with scientific theory and fact.   If you want to talk fairy tales, go down the hall and talk to Father Mike."

    There's a reason parents (doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc. who are grads themselves) will drive their kids to this school rather than send them to one in their own safe neighborhoods.

    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment?
    No.

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare?  Once.  My friend and I were late at the same time.  I got my period late, she was pregnant. 

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"?  Yeah, Mom's talk was pretty different from Dad's.  Hers was all about being sure and prevention, his was all about not doing it at all.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence?  Catholic high school, so abstinence.

    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment?  No, you had to take Family for that and I didn't take it.

    Do you watch Teen Mom?  No.  My mom does, though.  It's weird.

    Have you ever had a pregnancy scare?  Once, two summers ago.  My period's always been a bit unpredictable (though it's normalized recently) and this time it was unusually late.  I practically cried with relief when it finally came.

    Did your folks ever give you "the talk"?  Not that I recall.  Honestly, I don't remember really how I learned about sex.  I probably picked up a lot from the books that I was reading that were most certainly not aimed at grade schoolers.

    Were you taught about prevention or abstinence?  Again, don't really recall.  Though the information about STDs and contraceptive failure rates rings a bell.

    In health class, were you ever given an egg or a electronic baby for an assignment?  I don't even remember if we even had health class, but I don't think we did the baby experiment.  There's a whole lot I don't remember about school, though.  Good old reliable suppression of memories.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284
